Getting Your Alpine Adventure Fix in Vancouver, Canada
Want to scale a snow-capped peak but be back home in time for dinner? Mt. Seymour, just a few minutes from downtown Vancouver, offers weekend explorers the chance to have their own Everest adventure, no special equipment required. Starting from the ski resort, trails wind through alpine forest to Seymour's 3,100-foot summit. Expect six-foot snowdrifts, towering pines and some of the best views in British Columbia. Don't forget a hot chocolate at the ski lodge on the way out.
